I missed out on Tartar Control. Everyone that was there said they were amazing. The shenanigans I did get into that night instead of the gig were astonishing though. I went from having a quiet romantic dinner night staying in to running wild in the streets until 2 pm. the next day. I was in bed by 3. I think I was doing OK so far. :-)
Up at 8 pm, out of bed by 9. Jeremy and Bob arrive and we're on our way to the gig @ the Double Clown by 10. Commence hard drinking immediately upon arrival. Opening bands were pretty craptacular, but Soto St. was pretty good. They totally copped that China White riff though... heh heh The Vegascendents played a spectacular set, from what I'm told. I missed the girl go go dancing, I missed the pit action and stage diving, but I did see the band head for higher ground when the slamming got out of hand... LOL It was a fun night and Thanx! to everyone for all the free booze and well wishes. As you can see on the front of the website, Bob had a lot more fun than I did though... heh heh heh It was my birthday, and Bob is the one who's passed out and puking on the sidewalk - go figure. And as for the ensuing shenanigans immediately afterwords, the names and places have been changed to protect the guilty, for you see, no one was innocent that night - nope! hahaha Blackmail pictures exist. I'm working with my Lawyer to prevent them from ever seeing the light of day. I'm in bed by 1 pm. Annihilated.
I'm up at 2 pm. On the way to Jesse and Roxie's by 3. Next thing I know is I'm splitting a bottle of Pendleton with Brandi Lynn, Zak's better half who also had a birthday this weekend and she was at the Double Clown on Sat. and celebrating hard too. We had an amazing beef brisket dinner with Family and Friends and ate purple cake and watched Sugar Man and The Who - Live in '75 videos. The cool kids played Super Mario Bros Wii. The rest of us watched. The bad kids were outside smoking. The rest of us drank. I was in bed by midnight, after Bob stopped by to unload the van and apologize for dropping the ball. I told him to shut up and not worry about it. I was hallucinating and seeing double by the time I passed out. Seriously.
And here we are today. I woke up at 1 pm, finished off that beef brisket Roxie sent me Home with, caught up on Facebook crap and Thanked everyone for the birthday well wishes, and sat in front of my monitor and watching Howard Stern roasts and trying to make sense of it all. Thanks to everyone for all the fun. I wished for nothing and got everything. It was the best. <3
